Randi Solin

imagesFounder, sole owner and president of Solinglass, Solin has twenty-six years of glassblowing experience, and 18 years experience owning and operating her glassblowing studio. Her work is featured among the permanent collections of the White House; the United States Embassies in Algeria and Guinea, The St. Petersburg Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, and has been exhibited in solo and group shows in museums and galleries across the country. She has won several art festival awards in the United States, including numerous Best in Show awards and many Best of Glass awards.

Solin holds a minor in Education and taught at San Jose Sate University for 18 months. Later she worked at Cedarpoint, Ohio, a large-scale amusement park where she blew glass for the public to large crowds. She educated audiences about the entire process of glassblowing, and sold what she made during those demonstrations at an adjacent gallery.

Solin was one of the first artist tenants at the Cotton Mill in Brattleboro, Vermont. She has been both a pioneer as well as a model for the vision of the incubator space, using the favorable rent and overhead costs as a springboard to expand her business and create livable wage jobs. In 1999, she founded the Cotton Mill Open Studio Tour, which has grown into a hugely successful winter event for Cotton Mill tenants, as well as a much anticipated shopping and learning event for local families, tourists, and the greater Brattleboro community.
